Charming 17th century building on the banks of the sleepy Magdalena river, with a picturesque courtyard garden, a roof terrace and a serene yet cheerful atmosphere.

Set on the banks of the Río Magdelena and just a stone's throw from the centre of historic Mompós, this lovely 17th century building is a wonderful place in which to unwind in a hammock or rocking chair, easing into the town's distinctly slow and sleepy pace of life.

The family-run Casa Amarilla follows a traditional colonial design with a beautiful courtyard garden at its centre, bursting with the vibrant colours of tropical plants and abuzz with hummingbirds. There's also a rooftop terrace overlooking the tiled rooftops and serene streets below.

Guestrooms are stylishly decorated with wooden furniture, ceiling beams and shuttered windows; some have their own private roof terrace. There's no restaurant but a delicious breakfast is served in a room at the back adorned with murals, and there's also a communal kitchen which, together with the many relaxation areas dotted around the building, lends a sociable, friendly atmosphere.

What our clients say

  • Highlights?: I cannot really think of anything that wasn't memorable. Perhaps my overriding memory is of the friendliness and helpfulness of the ordinary Colombians I encountered.

    DM, Nottingham
  • Highlight?: The coffee region and Cartagena were both spectacular to visit. Mompos was lovely and worth making the effort to get to.

  • Enjoyed every aspect of our trip to Colombia. Fourteen years ago when we first visited the country we felt slightly on edge due to security situation. This time we experienced a very different feeling as we travelled around. Everyone we met seemed eager to show their country in a positive light and we sensed a population very proud of what their nation has to offer.

  • San Agustin and Isnos were amazing expereinces: cultures I knew nothing about and memorable sites and monuments.

    DG, Sheffield
  • It was a great trip, a nice balance of activity and free time and we felt we saw several different sides of Colombia. 

    MJ, E14
  • It was a superb trip, I don’t think our feedback really conveyed how much we enjoyed Colombia particularly. It really exceeded our expectations. Los Llanos was super superb.
